Wilkinson’s plan to keep legal costs in car insurance would cost people $400 more
Andrew Wilkinson’s plan to cancel the BC NDP’s Enhanced Care model and keep sky-high legal costs in the system would cost drivers hundreds more each year – for both public and private car insurance.
But even if private insurance wasn’t more expensive, Andrew Wilkinson would cancel the single most important measure: cutting down on the astronomical legal costs that are driving up insurance rates for everyone.
The BC NDP’s Enhanced Care model cuts down on hundreds of millions every year in legal costs, allowing ICBC to improve care for people and reduce car insurance by 20% starting May 1, 2021. That’s an average savings of $400 a year.
Andrew Wilkinson’s plan to keep hundreds of millions in payments to law firms will cost people more – regardless of whether people are buying public or private insurance.
